The cult of self-care is ever growing. Forest bathing, spa days for one, alone time, days free from digital technology (which must be announced pre- and post- break on social media—where else?): the desire to take considered care of ourselves with helpful actions, no matter how small, is a global phenomenon.

The artists we speak to within this issue all explore these ideas through different avenues—whether looking at the addictive and eerie pull of solo bathroom time, exploring the powerful potential of self-preservation for marginalized and under-represented groups, or finding ways to protect the healing microbiomes that we can’t even see.
